Easily set and easy to operate, this freeware quickly generates random passwords, but lacks expected options. Password List Generator's dialog-size interface makes do with just a few function buttons and a pair of text-box options. Even without a Help file, anyone can quickly figure out this app.

Operating Password List Generator takes a few clicks. You can choose to allow letters, numbers, or both. Unfortunately, you can't allow capital letters or symbols. It takes just a second to choose password length and number of passwords needed. Passwords are then generated with a button click. As it works, the app displays the number of passwords created and the number left to go. Afterward, it takes a button click to sort the list or another click to save the list to a text file.

If you don't mind the inability to add symbols or uppercase letters, this freeware can help any user generate a large number of random passwords.

Developer's Description

Password List Generator is a password generator which generates a described list of passwords and can save all passwords into one text file. This program shows elapsed time generating character combinations (passwords), speed, and has lots of options to select to suit your needs. Random Generation - slow, but random character combination generation. Good for a small number of combinations. Progressive List Generation - fast (up to 1000 times faster if writing directly to file), no randomness. Great for huge (millions, trillions or even more) amounts of combination, where every possible combination is needed. Users should enjoy the new "Password generation speed" feature in the bottom right corner, which gives you an idea of how fast your computer is generating your desired character combinations.
